Stuck with plex install

ubuntu
plex

#1

So I’ve run the plex install but upon loading the ip:32400 I login to my plex account and see my local server but no quickbox server. So I found your article on ssh and forwarding 8888 to localhost:32400 but no dice, I get an error page not found… I don’t believe the tunnel is working? I followed the guide exactly.

Then I tried x2go. It prompts for login, I enter my credentials, it connects then immediately disconnects me saying “the remote proxy closed the connection ect ect and possibly a wrong password” credentials work fine in ssh with putty though.

I’m about 6 hours in here googling everything I can and this is just a huge roadblock. I can’t see what I am doing wrong here?

OS is Ubuntu 16.04

PM me your details and I’ll have a look

For anyone else stuck in the same boat, the work around I used was:

Installed OpenVPN, Connected to my remote server via OpenVPN, went to the LAN IP of my remote server (10.x.x.x:32400/web for me) and adopted the server, Enabled remote access, and disconnected my VPN. It now work externally.
